Tobruk, 22 March 2015:
Tribal leaders from Cyrenaica, Fezzan, Zintan, and the Tebus have reaffirmed their support for the . . .[restrict]House of Representatives (HoR) as the sole legitimate legislature in Libya, as well as for the Libyan National Army (LNA) and its war on terrorism.
“We’ve elected the House of Representatives. The General National Congress has expired,” Tebu representative Abdullah Moussa told Libya News 24 in an interview.
According to one person present at a meeting of the tribal leaders in Tobruk on Saturday that was also attended by a number of HoR members, the first step to “true dialogue” would be for the UN to give more weight to the HoR as the only legitimate authority in Libya over what he referred to as the “coup” carried out by Libya Dawn and Congress.
In the meantime, the tribes called for the expediting of the Libyan Constitution “in accordance with the aspirations of the Libyan people”, and in the meantime, proposed that the 1951 Constitution be put into effect until the new one has been approved. [/restrict]
